VOLUNTEERS CARING FOR MANHATTAN
With the collaboration of the Manhattan Ministerial Alliance, area physicians, Mercy Regional Health Center and various members of the community, the Flint Hills Community Clinic opened its doors to the public in July 2005. In the years since, hundreds of clinic volunteers have provided thousands of free healthcare appointments to those in the community who are without health insurance. FHCC has expanded to operate three evenings and one afternoon each week through the generosity of the community’s donation of time and financial contributions. All FHCC patients are seen completely free of charge by volunteer providers.
The Mission of the Flint Hills Community Clinic is to understand and serve the health and wellness needs of the medically under-served in our community by providing QUALITY, COMPASSIONATE and PERSONALIZED care.
FHCC patients are required to be uninsured, residents of the city of Manhattan and/or Riley County and living in households that are at or below 200% of the federal poverty guideline.
Volunteers provide non-emergent healthcare ranging from basic outpatient services to chronic disease management. The clinic also provides preventive services, educational services and referrals to area specialists.
Patients are seen by appointment during clinic hours on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
